The Curse of a Motor Mower
They’re motives of the weekend - they’re a gardener’s saving grace,
buzzing up and down and ‘round and ‘round cleaning up the place.
There’s nothing like the latest smell of a freshly mown down lawn,
once you ease a hiccup which can cause...Read More

My Life's Rollercoaster
Sunny storms drench away the sorrow I feel inside
Rainstorms and thunderstorms make life a rowdy ride
The clouds above are dancing merrily and I look up and stare 
Raindrops and sunshine fill my days and nights as I prepare…

To Check or Not to Check
I do not like to check my bag
When flying on vacation.
A carry-on ensures I’ll have it
At my destination.

On routes that take me overseas
There have been times I’ve checked it
But never once have I been charged
So now I don’t expect it.

However,...Read More

She stretched her arms across your abyss,
so that she could covertly open your door.
She cried as she peeked into your eyes,
for you held onto a grief that did not belong.
She promised to baptize you with positivity,
but she could not promise...Read More

Bite the Bullet -edited version-
I dreamt of embracing the abyss
Wake me up to an open door
Illuminate me with positivity
I slept in grief for so long for doing wrong
Exterminate my negativity
Make me feel whole once more
Lead me to your eternal bliss
Seeking deliverance of wanting to...Read More

Come With Me
Venture through my mind
There, you will find
Me alone in my own home,
All on my own
Venture through my mind,
Never left behind
Come with me;
Follow my footsteps to the unknown 

Come with me

Come with me
Let's be free
Just you and me
We'll be...Read More

Naked truth, bent nails
dead men tell no tales
bad Apple, broken mirrors
burnt out light bulbs, crocodile tears
spilt milk, goose chase
two cents worth, rat race
rotten egg, bad to the bone
eagle eye, no place like home.

Roses are red
Violets are blue
When I lay in bed
I dream of you

On my first day at school
You said hello and winked at me
You stood there looking so cool
I knew that we were meant to be

Since that very first day
I knew...Read More

Interpreting Poetry mine
Interpreting Poetry (mine)

Similar to scrutinizing
an abstract painting,
this author begetting
obscure words dumbfounding
readers, he eludes
(no shade tree fore rest)
clear cut discerning,
yet oft times his words

garner reviews raving
esoteric word choice,
how mind boggling
to this logophile despite
more than one reading
brow (sir) furrowed -
cognitive region scrunching,

be faithful through hardship
Be faithful through hardship

Bite the bullet and get a grip

Be faithful through hardship

Be fearless in times of trouble

Be not doubtful and be hopeful

Have happiness, you mournful soul

We may go through tribulations

That get us frustrated and hurt

But, know that you are...Read More

The Ascension of Me
I was so lonely and speechless, you see?
I couldn’t breathe, so please, oh please…
If only you were completely there for me…
It would put me at ease, so put me at ease

You weighed me down for so long
I just can’t make...Read More

I’m a dolphin without waves
I’m a mountain lion without his prey
Again, I’m a beaver without a dam
I will come as I am – His wandering lamb

Sang the tunes in my brain
Weakening in the ruins
I broke down, thinking I’m insane
Empty without...Read More

I Ain't a Game to Play With - Chapter 2 - Loyalty Mends My Broken Heart
-	Written August 11, 2018

I lay down in silent agony, left unsure,
Drowning in distress, yet happiness will be a stone, rolling back on me in an instant or in a moment…anxiety heightened 

You are chopped onions in my eyes…
You shed over...Read More

To Belong is a Harmonious Bravery
 A sense of belonging 
Is amongst your nobility
Peaceably, truly longing
To give praise to You entirely

Take me all the way with your sway of youth
Give me physical poetry, please, beyond the truth
You are more priceless than pennies from heaven
You make...Read More

My Last Night
If this were my last night on earth
Would I sit and wonder my worth
Or would I bite the bullet and say
It doesn’t matter I will kick back and now par-tay

I would do all those things I could
And not worry about...Read More

The Havasu of Hopes
Go, go, go ahead,
Yeah, go right ahead
Give me your all-in-your-head dread
While I keep living…keep living…
I will remember to start believing and giving
This life here, I’ll keep reliving…
Yeah, keep living longevity in a lifetime
This tranquil time, we’ll be fine and sublime

They were sitting in an old-fashioned coffee house unraveling the beans
Little nuggets of wisdom not coated in sugar not creamed by distortion

other to be of altruistic and selfless composure...Read More

You Told Me

On me you'd tittle tattle
Too often you told me fiddle-faddle
Now you're beginning to unravel
Can't even handle
Your own battle
And are being used an example
For what happens when you pull a scandal

You told me claptrap
It's time I speed off on you like...Read More

Gun Shy

You don’t have to say
one spherical metallic word
I know with GSW empathy credulity
just how you feel ... I bequeath kindred sympathy
Taking one lead body blow 
for the I homeboy visiting team,
was enough mental pain timeout for me
And the physical hurt...Read More

The Virus
The lesser of two evils, do two wrongs make one right?
The bullets may have steel hulls, but it takes powder to ignite.

The elephant in the room, can't be seen.
It's a skeleton in the closet, for too long it has been.

Legendary Trace
Helplessly calling
Helplessly falling
Falling into place
Running this race

Fall leaves on the ground
They make no single sound
I'm bound to see the other side
You're my one and only beautiful bride

See right through the pain

Don't speak
Just listen...
Let's seek
His face again...

God knows we've tried
To do better in the long run
Deep inside, I bite the bullet and cried
Let's escape like a bullet shot by a gun

You're original
Just the way you are
You're beautiful
Let me heal your scar
You're...Read More

My Life's A Battlefield
Now our love is over life is a battlefield
Guns are blazing out a trail of obscenities

Life's a battlefield shouting and hurting but why

There's a pounding in my head

There's no point in explaining

Might just tear me apart
This horrid feeling in my stomach
Might be butterflies, fluttering in...Read More

This bottle of vodka has me ready to share my secrets

Anxiety makes me over think so the smallest issues seem insurmountable
I make a lot of mistakes and hold myself...Read More
